The CSV stands for "comma separated value" and it is a common  file format used by most applications, databases, and other software to interpret data tables.  Files saved in this format will end in '.csv'.

A .csv file can easily be edited by Microsoft Excel or other spreadsheet software.  In the text file each record exists on its own row, with each field being separated by a comma.  For example, this is what a .csv file looks like as text:

CloudBadging uses .csv files as an fast and easy way to import large amounts of data. Users are also able to export their data as a .csv file; allowing them to complete batch updates to records and then re-import into their CloudBadging account.
